Creativity of the menu and the deliciously fresh dishes....wow, this is a place where you can easily be a regular. The sushi here is world class. My wife and I and our Colombian friend appreciated the friendly and efficient service and it is great value for money. The decor is also beautiful and relaxing.

I used to visit this restaurant on a weekly basis, but over the years it has been on a rapid decline. I visited the restaurant a last time in December and I am never again visiting. Just a disclaimer, I have only ordered sushi and crepes and this restaurant and this review is based solely on that experience. When the... More

We went three times while in Cali, and two out of three ain't bad - first two times, food was good (not outstanding but tasty and varied menu), staff were friendly, and value was ok. Third time we went for all you can eat sushi and the place was rammed. We were given a nice welcome but the waiting staff... More

Very creative menu is a delight to read. Whatever you choose will be delicious. Finish with a cup of tea infused with fruits...can't... More

Try sushi with local fruits... the one with Lulo is amazing, also tried sushi with green banana, fantastic! You can order half rolls so you can get a taste of few things in the menu... Two other favorites are the cheese finger entrees and I love mixed fajitas (ask for sirashi sauce on the side, a bit hot but great)....
